18. Joe Thomas, OT, Browns

Wednesday August 10th, 2016

Like Staley, you could call Thomas ‘Old Faithful,’ but how about just excellent? There has been zero decline in Thomas’s play and you could make the argument that he’s still the best considering his flawless pass blocking. Thomas is the king of not having any wasted movement in his pass sets, and his balance is second-to-none. We didn’t have him as the No. 1 offensive tackle on our list because Thomas’s run blocking is very good but it’s not dominating.
